The HPT/DNR Trail School is back in town this week! This year we have trail builders from the CAMBA group (Chequamegon Area up north) in class. The CAMBA trails has over 200 miles of various types of trails. In the past couple of years they have focused on building sustainable single track with a goal to have 75 miles completed in the next couple of years. Also, Brigit Brown from the DNR will be here today and Friday. And who can forget the instructor - Mike Riter! This guy is amazing ...Please take this opportunity to meet and learn from all the above folks while they are in town.
In order to facilitate the learning experience, we will be convening at Ebeneezer's Restaurant at the Holiday Inn downtown at around 5:30 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Share a beverage or two and rub shoulders with fellow trail enthusiasts.
This Thursday, after starting out at the Holiday Inn, we will move on over to Big Al's to share a pizza - or two - or three!!
Lots of learning will occur this week! Please come on down and share. Bring your questions on trail building or equipment ideas in throw them on the table! There is plenty of experience in town this week to offer some excellent answers!
See ya at the Holiday Inn at 5:30 pm!
